Hi Friend,

No need to panic buy, plenty on offer at The Swan:
  • Mini-Market
  • Clothes Sale
  • Online Auction
  • Green Room Winter Fayre
And much more.


Members of The Cycle Hub will be on hand from 11:00 at The Swan to offer safety checks, bike security marking, help or advice on repairs and answer any other bike-related questions. There will be a guided 'Adventurer' ride leaving at 11:30. For further details please take a look here.


The last Mini-Market before Christmas is this Sun 12 noon - 3pm. Offering an array of exciting stalls, including Cheesemunger and other favourites. Our ever popular BBQ will also be available. A new attraction will be a stall offering new and nearly used clothes for you and your family. Come and join us for some bargains.


Hot off the press we have secured the services of Swan supporter Josie to offer her super sewing skills at the Clothes Stall at the Mini-Market this Sunday. She will be ready and waiting with her sewing machine. If you have clothes that need repairing bring them down and let Josie work her magic. There will be no charge but a donation to our refurbishments would be much appreciated.


It's back! 7:30pm on Tue 30 Nov The Swan Book Club returns. It is a book discussion group talking  about the books individuals recommend, whilst enjoying a glass of something!. For more information, please email: Everybody welcome in The Pub where it is warm. 


On Fri 3 Dec from 4:30 Green Room students will be running another of their famous Winter Fayres at The Swan. There will be activity throughout The Pub so please make sure you walk about to see them all. There's a real mix of stalls including arts & crafts in The School Room, live music from The Coach House, a South African BBQ, more food options, a raffle and Santa's Grotto too.


We are pleased to host the Windsor Living Advent Calendar after it's small break for Covid. The staff and pupils of the school will be putting on something (it's a big secret) from The Coach House. This was extremely popular two years ago and certainly not to be missed. 
From our events diary, here is the last Advent Calendar so you can get a feel for what is instore. Starts promptly at 6.15pm.


Dublicious is back and offering a Winter Stew Night. Choose between a Daube of Venison, a Daube of vegetables or a Daube of fish. A Daube is a classic Provençal stew served with an array of extras in true Dublicious style. For full details please follow this link. Order by noon on Wed 1 Dec for collection from The Swan 6-6:30 on Fri 3 Dec.


Follow this link to get to the Auction to see all that is on offer.


The Swan 2020 Community Charity, Family Friends, are experiencing increased demand for their support. They are aiming to raise £10,000 by Dec 15 so they can continue supporting families in the Borough who are going through a difficult time, especially in the run up to Christmas. Better still, any donation made (up to £250) before Dec 15 will be matched by the @national_emergencies_trust_ .Please take a look at their appeal and see how you can support them.


Final total raised for BBC Children In Need is an amazing £1,440.36. A sincere thank you to everyone involved.


Enjoying the benefits of the outside heaters our winners this week, Haven't a Clue-A, were too hot to handle. Winning with 40 points despite the round called 'sex' not being quite what was advertised! Martin will be back again with more challenges on Wed 9 Dec.


December is fast approaching so that means Father Christmas is on his way. He will be making special visits to The Swan 10-12 noon on Sat 11 and Sat 18 Dec. Early booking via is essential to avoid disappointment. £5 per child with a present for everyone.


GR6 have had a busy week, preparing for the Winter Fayre as well as continuing to work on their various other projects. One group of students are launching an online charity clothing sale using the Depop app, with funds raised going to our continued support of students in the village of Mankoadze in Ghana.

Epic Thursday was Thanksgiving-themed this week, with soup made from our famous pumpkins going down a treat with customers. Elliot, pupil of the week, is launching his own motor repair business - if you need an old lawnmower or other garden machinery serviced or fixed, he is your man.
The colder weather has not deterred our hardy gardeners who have been working hard at the allotment, making sure the Market Garden will be in rude health come the spring. We did have a small bonfire to warm the hands!


The Weekday Warriors were joined by staff from McFarlane Telfer (MCFT) this week. We are indebted to MCFT who have supplied the vast majority of the kitchen equipment for The Swan. They visited on Wed to finalise the end of the kitchen renovation and install. The end is in sight!

Come and see for yourself all that is on offer at The Swan.

Warm regards,

The Friends of The Swan
